I wasn’t sure if they were going to be a regular thing or perhaps a Patreon subscriber bonus. I asked a few people to do some as an experiment and you are going to hear two of them today.
Crystal Salamon is an artist who took a leap of faith a few years ago and did a print run of 2000 colouring books. The story she tells of what happened when she checked her sales the next day is filled with emotion.
http://TheSparkAndTheArt.com/150 - I've been listening to the book This is Your Brain on Music - Dr. Daniel J. Levitin. It's about the science behind what happens to your brain when you listen to music and what makes it such a powerful thing in the lives of humans.
http://TheSparkAndTheArt.com/149 - Troy is a songwriter but as you’ll learn he does more than just write songs. Recording demos and working as a producer for other artists and more. Works well with our episode about Streams of Income.
http://www.TheSparkAndTheArt.com/147 - I’m taking away the piece on how to reframe my concerns about what others think of either me or my actions. My biggest struggle isn’t always finding the time to do something it’s when my brain justifies the reasons I shouldn’t do something based on what I think others might think. Thanks Jerusha.
http://www.TheSparkAndTheArt.com/146 - You can sell anything you want. The secret is to sell what other people want. I’m not going to get into the difference between selling what people want and what people need I’ll cover that in another episode one day.
http://thesparkandtheart.com/145 – This week we talk with Improviser, Actress, Producer and professional breath recording artist Rebecca Northan. In today’s chat Rebecca reflects on a yearbook quote and how it relates to her life now and the interesting work that actors do that you didn't even know were jobs.
